The order detail view now has a back button that links to home.

Bug Fixes 🐛

More precise active orders count warning

On rare occasions, the Dashboard did not warn if the maximum amount of allowed orders had been reached before the user opened a new order. Now, the warning correctly accounts for the current contract maximum.

UDM and UDM2 files for SkySatScene and SkySatCollect items now set to clear for Panchromatic without Multispectral coverage

UDM and UDM2 assets for SkySatScene and SkySatCollect item types have been slightly adjusted to include data values where we have Panchromatic but no Multispectral coverage, resulting in no cloud mask information. These areas, previously marked as nodata, are now to be marked as valid, with a cloud classification of clear with a confidence of 1 (the lowest).

"Deprecated" means we intend to remove the feature or capability from a future release. The feature or capability will continue to work and is fully supported until it is officially removed. This deprecation notification can span a few months or years. After removal, the feature or capability will no longer work. This notice is to allow you sufficient time to plan and update your code before the feature or capability is removed.

Deprecating PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band ⚠️

PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band item types will be deprecated on March 1, 2022 with plans to formally end-of-life the item types on January 31, 2023. In its place, Planet is introducing PSScene, a new item type that allows you to search and download all PlanetScope data in a unified way. PSScene provides the same PlanetScope 3-band and 4-band items as PSScene3Band and PSScene4Band item types, but allows users to search one item type for all available 3-band, 4-Band, and 8-Band assets. Using the PSScene data type, users can also access 8-band PlanetScope data at no additional cost. We recommend all customers begin today to migrate to the PSScene item type.

Visit the PSScene FAQ to learn more.

Read about automated migration and steps to take in the Deprecation and Migration Plan.

Begin using PSScene today.
